Ubuntu :: Archive Manager Is Not Working (Can't Download Things)?

Jun 20, 2010

I have upgraded my Ubuntu to 10.04, in hopes that my problem would dissapear. Sadly, it hasn't. You see, my archive manager isn't cooperating with me and it's not letting me download anything. For example, I tried to download Sony Vegas and it gave me the following error. (Among other things, but this data seems more important.)" End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In thelatter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive. "

This occured when I tried to open the "SonyVegas 8.0 exe" . I have unzipped this file. I think "exe" has something to do with Windows, if so, is there a way I can convert this file so it can be adapted to my archive manager? Or is my archive manager not working, correctly? Does anyone else have these problems, also? Please, I want to be able to download things and my archive manager is the reason I can't.

Ubuntu :: Archive Manager Not Working In 11.04?

May 2, 2011

I have upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 and I am using the classic ubuntu interface instead of Unity. I am facing problems with the Archive Manager. My problem is that I can open archives but I can not modify them or create a new zip file with the GUI. I get an error saying:

zip error: Invalid command arguments (no such option: -)

The easiest way to reproduce it is by right-clicking on any file, pressing compress and selecting .zip in the file format.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Is Deleting Important Things?

Aug 17, 2010

I grabbed Adobe AIR today, but it did not have 64-bit packages, or source. It claimed that you could install getlib(?), then force it to install with dpkg --force-arcitecture. I did so, and it runs fine.

Now, the Update Manager says that it cannot do a full upgrade. When I allow it to do a partial upgrade, it attempts to delete com.destroytoday.destroytwitter (the app I need AIR for.) Bottom line: Can I stop the Update Manager from removing this package? I can provide screenshots or logfiles on request.

Ubuntu :: Archive Manager Slow When Browsing Large Archives?

I have in my pc (ubuntu 10.10 32 bit) a folder with about 10.000 files. It is a samba shared folder and so far I could browse fast and easily those files in another old ( Pentium4 1,5Ghz) PC with WinXP. I installed ubuntu 10.10 but the browsing now is toooooooo slow , although the old Pc's performance is considerably faster than before (when I had WinXP). Also, although the old PC's speed is satisfatory now, would it become even faster if I installed an older ubuntu distro?

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Manager Calls These Things "Important Security Upgrades"

Mar 17, 2011

when i got my starling netbook 6 months ago it worked perfectly. due to upgrades since then i now have problems with printing, sound and videos. there are probably solutions to all of these things if i spent hours here on the forum asking questions, and trying different solutions, but it seems like a lot of work.

upgrade manager calls these things "important security upgrades". are they really important to security? would my computer be dangerously vulnerable to attack if i never did an upgrade?

Programming :: Name Of Formula N Things Out Of Collection Of M Things

Jul 22, 2011

I'm working through some problems in a beginners programming book. The author mentions a formula for calculating the number of ways of picking out n things from a collection of m of them:

Code:
/ m m!
| | = -----------
n / n! (m-n)!
But he does not give a name for the formula. Does anyone happen to know what it is called? I need to do some related research.

Ubuntu :: Manager "Cannot Create Archive" / What To Do?

Dec 21, 2010

In the upper left corner, I click places>documents (or anything besides computer) and I get the error,

"Could not create the archive, archive type not supported" from archive manager.

I saw a thread from a while back claiming I could just right click and "open with," but that simply isn't possible in these drop down menus, right clicks are treated as left clicks.

Does anybody have any ideas? It's very annoying trying to quickly access my files and having to go through Computer every time to get to them.

PS: I also deleted an "inode directory=" line in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeaps, as explained by a forum thread I found. Still, no luck...

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager / Software Sources / Synaptic Package Manager Not Working?

Sep 30, 2010

It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.

I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!

Ubuntu :: How To Find A Download Manager

May 22, 2010

I've desperately been trying to find a download manager for premium rapidshare download and Downloader For X seems to be the most popular solution around. I've tried DTA and Flashgot, they do the trick but not exactly a Flashget (Windows) equivalent.In Downloader For X, I can't get to download anything because of the additional slashes and numbers and stuff. For example, the URL [URL] becomes [URL]I checked the forums and it seems I'm not alone. There is even a working solution [URL]but the date is quite old (I'm using Lucid) and I couldn't find the main/addr.cc file .

Ubuntu Servers :: Get Web Based Download Manager?

Feb 1, 2010

I have installed 9.10 server on an old machine at home that I want to use purely for managing any software downloads.

I used to use the firefox add on DownThemAll on my ubuntu desktop environment so I am looking for a web based download manager for the server that has similar features (username/password restricted downloads, scheduling, pausing/restarting downloads) as DownThemAll.

I basically want to be able to add a bunch of downloads to a list and the server then downloads them. I need to be able to save a username/password combination for certain sites. I would also like to be able to see progress on the downloads and pause/resume them

General :: Download Manager For Ubuntu Over Network

The file is not hosted so what I did was just "connect to remote server" via Ubuntu, navigate to the directory where the file is and copy and paste it into my file system.Unfortunately I was not able to download the file because the connection conked out. I was wondering if there was some sort of download manager that would enable me to copy the file I want and if the connection goes out again just resume.

Ubuntu :: Substitute For Internet Download Manager

Jan 29, 2010

I have gone through many threads but most of them have been dead for many time and I think there would have been a few advances in the Ubuntu software domain, so maybe a new downloader is up which manages downloads in a better way.Well, those who have used Internet Download Manager know that it is one of the best ones offered for Windows. It has many useful functions available in one single domain.

- It integrates to all browsers damn well, like charm.
- It can manage rapidshare, megaupload, hotfile and similar file hosting services very smoothly.
- It is a multi-threaded downloader which means that before starting to download file it breaks it up in many small pieces, and then downloads all fragments side by side, making the download very very fast, even on slower connections.
- It can also do very well with the websites which do not permit multithreaded downloading from their servers.
- It can take on video downloads from any page on the web which has a streaming video.
- It is very stable (if bought legitimately, which is not true in most cases ). But quite stable in even when not registered or cracked.
- Above all, it has a smart gui interface which provides interactive operations on downloaded files.

I have used many downloaders for Ubuntu and there has been some problem with each one. Some have a nice CLI structure but not GUI. Some of them are not multi-threaded. Some are multithreaded but do not allow pausing and continuing downloads (which actually does not satisfy the very definition of download managers). I haven't seen a single download manager which is GUI, multithreaded and well integrated to browsers all at the same time.What I want to know is, do my friends here at Ubuntu galaxy want to point out a real shiny star here which would make me forget the damn propriety software? Or if such a downloader hasn't been built yet, why not let's build one... Shouldn't be too hard especially if we have a model example (IDM 5.18 for Windows) in front of us... Well the algorithm must be simple, get address, verify the existence of file, break apart into several pieces and start downloading. I don't know how to implement this algorithm yet, but I am a quick learner and if a few expert programmers join me, we can do something that would remove one complain for most Ubuntu users.
